Homemade Pizza Sauce

I bought a Runner's World a few weeks ago, not because they had some insightful information to share about running but because they had a five page spread on pizza. 
Not only did they share pictures that looked so good it wasn't even right, they said that pizza is (get this) healthy and a great food for runners.  Well hell yes!  I'm in! 
The article went on about sauces and toppings and homemade crust.  I figured that best to not get to wild and go for the crust from the box + make your own sauce combo.  Interesting how the make your own sauce part worked beautifully and the crust from the box part was a semi disaster.  But more on that later.  

But today we will focus on the sauce.  This was easy and quick and cheap.  It also stores well in a mason jar which automatically ups its cute factor.  

Because cute factor with pizza sauce is what's important.
